    Default AOD Battlefield team? Possibly.

    This is pending Gigglebear's/another higher ups approval, but I'm interested in creating an AOD 5's or 8's team. 5s is infantry and 8s is mixed mode and anybody in AOD would be willing to join. Obviously this would be versus competitive players, so you may have a little difficulty adjusting, but that's ok, that's what practice is for! We have a 10 man defuse server that NOBODY plays that we could password and use to practice on. We will get top 10 and the website URL will be kept on our team page, possibly generating interest from competitive players who'd like to join for the community aspect! Obviously they'd have to still go through recruitment and vetting to make sure they're cool dudes. Anyway, if anyone's interested you can post here and we can get you setup. For those who ARE interested, please keep in mind that this will take a little time away from general pubbing, I'd like to practice an hour or two a couple nights a week. I don't think that's too rigorously demanding, I know most of you guys have families and careers that take precedence.

    I'm pretty sure there's a reason why we don't do this.

    Definitely talk to giggle about it.

    If it goes anywhere I would be interested, depending on the times I'm available (15 credit hours starts in 3 weeks).

    Back in Bad Company 2 days we did a lot of competition and we were pretty good at it. I played with the competitive AOD team back then, and trust me, I'm all about the objective when it comes to that kind of game play!

    We generally don't try to do competitive stuff anymore because it creates tension among members.

    We used to do things like TWL and all those other fantastic ladders and whatnot, but it separated members from each other. It creates animosity towards each other. People start asking "Why am I not good enough for this team?" and then you have people quitting because they feel they're better.

    Having played and lead a team in ESL I say that aslong as you dont make it your only reason for playing the game and keep it as a side-thing it works well. Just rotate the players you have and make sure everyone gets to take part, it helps teamspirit. The teamwork and tactics and positioning can mostly be used in normal servers aswell, as me and some teammates proved time and again in BF3 :)

    The animosity, exclusion and "eliticism" that Dash mentions are still possible problems, but they are not a guaranteed outcome, however if we start recruiting people that are purely competetive I can see those issues arising fairly quickly.

    This sounds interesting but I agree with Rainbow Dash completely. CoC says put the needs of the clan before your own etc, and creating any separation and "elitism" as Sasori mentioned is definitely not what's best for the clan.

    We have a growing program for more effective squad operations. We meet almost every Wednesday at 9 PM. Everyone is welcome to join that endeavor. As to competition, no. Unless our course is drastically altered by our new CO, the BF4 division of AOD will not be competitive on anyone's ladder scheme.

    There would be no separatism or elitism and everybody would get a fair amount of play time. Why is this a no? There are players I'd imagine who are interested in becoming better through competition.

    Cream, get with me on Vent when you get a moment. Perhaps there we can come to a better understanding.

    If it is possible for it to go off smoothly then I would like to be a part of it, but not otherwise.

    Cream I've brought this up in the past. Usually does not get approved. If it does this time around, count me in.

    I did a short stint on TWL of BFBC2 and BF3. I doubt this will get approved but I'd be interested in this, as well, if it does.

    I would actually be interested in this, if we were able to do such a thing. However, I don't think that BF4 is the right game for competitive stuff anyway. There's a few variables that add randomness to the game, and you can't really have randomness in a competitive scene, it's gotta be skill based. Such as the suppression mechanic, the random optic sway, bullet spread etc... Then again, I'm one of those who'd prefer if suppression wasn't a thing anyway.
